I'm new to gardening, but I've been trying to grow basil recently. I tried 2 years ago, and the basil kept growing like crazy and I kept harvesting the leaves.
I've tried again twice in the past two years, but now all the basil does is stay the same size as when I buy it, and the leaves slowly turn from a deeper green to a more yellow-green. The texture also turns kind of 'squeaky' (best I can describe it). And the plant doesn't really seem to grow at all.
Any ideas where I'm going wrong? It gets full sun, I live in southern california (north San Diego area).
